Default how to get rid of the sediment?

hello.

im lookin for ways to make the end product when making beer have little or no sediment in it (bottling). hoping for a professional look ya see.

im asuming putting beer into secondary when the yeast settles will help reduce sediment?

are there anyother ways?



cheers

Leaving it to fully clear will reduce as will using a bottling bucket but you'll get further yeast drop out form priming.

Learn to live with it and love it.

Or filter.

Or keg.

I don't filter. If I bottle I live with it and see it as a sign of real beer.
I keg at present.

Filtering still won't do the trick if you bottle condition your beer. The fermentation that takes place during bottle conditioning will always result in some sediment. To reduce the sediment almost entirely, keg your beer after letting it clear in the fermenter, force carbonate, then bottle it from the keg with a counterpressure filler or beer gun. To eliminate the sediment completely, filter it before kegging, force carbonate, and bottle from the keg. Filtering is probably a bit over the top, though. Bottling clear beer from the keg should make your beer pretty "professional" appearing.

As soon as you have the equipment to keg, you have everything you need to force carbonate. It's pretty easy and well documented, so I won't go into specifics here.

Two cents: let it go.

The clarity of most "professional" brews comes from some kind of mechanical force-filtering equipment, most likely a screen filter---where the beer is forced through a VERY fine filter. While this gives that great clear look, it also removes taste from the beer to a certain degree.

You can certainly go the route of clarifying with KC finings, etc., then kegging, then bottling with a counterpressure filler...but, um, that seems like a LOT of trouble just to get a budweiser-type clarity.
